Cook Inlet Tide Rips

The Oil Spill Recovery Institute (OSRI) in Cordova, Alaska and partner institutions are interested in developing the resources and tools needed to provide oil spill trajectories that can be used for planning purposes. We have initiated work to produce a hindcast using the NOAA Cook Inlet Operational Forecast System (CIOFS) model and compare those results to existing measurements. There are few detailed measurements of the oceanography associated with tidal rips. These features are convergence zones that are important to oil transport but may be poorly resolved by the models.
